NFL Draft Analyst Says MSU Players Aren't Quick To Praise Connor Cook

NFL Draft season is a time of the year for endless analysis of prospects' measurables, intangibles and everything in between. If you're a draft hopeful, expect to have every aspect of your life examined and dissected in excruciating detail. 

Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook is a prospect at the most highly-scrutinized position in football, so you can imagine how deep people are digging to find out if he is what you want in a franchise QB. According to longtime NFL Draft analyst Tony Pauline, Cook's college teammates haven't exactly been quick to praise the three-year starter.

This would seem like a major red flag, particularly at a "leadership" position like quarterback. Pauline did seem to soften his message when people on Twitter implied Cook's teammates hated him.

This surely won't become a story line over the next three months. Nope, not at all.
